Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Tourists from the East Coast are sharing photos sent to them from home as a dangerous storm strikes.
One person Action News spoke with said Las Vegas is the perfect place to be stuck, but even with all the distractions in this town, visitors from the East Coast are worried about those close to them.
Manuel Lopez.shared a photo of the storm sent to him by a friend from Brooklyn, New York. The photo shows Manuel's neighborhood, flooded by the East River. His building had to be evacuated as the storm approached.
Lopez is in Las Vegas for a convention, but his throughts are with the rising water back home.
250 miles south, people living along the Chesapeak Bay also saw the power of the storm.
Michelle Marx, a Maryland resident vacationing in Las Vegas, showed us a picture of water up to a mailbox. She's being looking at photos from home that friends and family are posting online.
While riding out the storm in Las Vegas may be easy, getting home may be more difficult.
Airports on the East Coast are virtually shut down for the time being, and hundreds of flights out of McCarran International Airport have been delayed or canceled altogether.
